Good Friday: Come, and Welcome to Jesus!

leave a comment »

Yes, on this Good Friday, come, and welcome to Jesus! By His death and resurrection, Jesus welcomes all who will come to Him, inviting us to confess our sins to Him, and bank on Him for redemption from the power of death and condemnation. On this Good Friday, I invite you, and I invite my own soul, to come again to Jesus, to put our unwavering trust in Him, and to find the joy of worship in His presence. Toward this end, I offer by way of encouragement, Daniel Fuller’s three enticements to worship and enjoy God with your lives:

1) The Triune God alone can bring us the good and happy future, full of joy, since we are made in His image;

2) God longs to share with each of us the greatest possible joy, namely, the very joy He has in being the Triune God; and

3) In addition to giving us joy at this present time, He guarantees that we shall be satisfied for all time to come.

May you ponder these enticements and take them into your soul. All of this goodness was purchased by Jesus – in His death and resurrection – for sinners who turn their lives over to Him. So come, and welcome to Jesus!
